..hooded merganser! Gonna mount this guy for sure! I watched the drake and hen fly around my spread then land about 150 yards away. They started to swim the bankline headed the opposite direction so I just figured it was a lost cause and diverted my attention back to my spread. A few minutes later some teal come soaring in doing mach 1 and I do my civic duty and proceed to unload on them. A few seconds later I catch movement out of the corner of my eye, the two hoodies were headed right for me. All I had was one shell left in the chamber so I picked out the drake and hoped for a good shot. Dropped him.
